Butterscotch Sauce Recipe by 12monthsOFwinter Butterscotch Sauce Recipe by 12monthsOFwinter
Butterscotch is a flavor that makes me feel sorry for Vegetarians. You can't make this stuff with margarine so they will never know it's wonderful and addictive taste....sad.
Anyways!
I love real butterscotch- this recipe came from the web and I've simplified the directions quite a bit. Most recipes I've tried are so particular about various things but the basics are simply butter, sugar, a heavy dairy product, vanilla and a bit of salt.
And caution is a must because cooking sugar is like working with real molten lava- but it's SO worth it! :lol

Minor edit: I changed it to cook on high rather than low at the start. Once the butter melts and you're stirring it all around you have to knock the heat back anyway so...

If it's as yummy as it looked in the picture, I'm not surprised!

Oh yum! Im going to have to have a crack at this.
And yes, yes sugar gets very very hot, I make my own marshmallow and toffees and that gets hot. Plus you have to work fairly fast with it, no time to stop :lol: Still its well worth it for the end results.

I made toffee as well and it turned out great but it's almost scary because it gets even hotter- this is way easier and faster...course it's half gone now!

:lmao: yeah i don't suppose it would last long :giggle: Nothing does in my house atleast, the kids devour everything in sight.

Ive seen a few places online that show how to make your own boiled hard candy (like humbugs and barleysugar types), its similar to the toffee process from what I can gather but they all recommend a candy thermometer so Im thinking ill invest in one before attempting it.

I don't even have kids as an excuse- lol!

But seriously, get a good candy thermometer- not the cheap kind with the red wooden ball on the clip- the clip is cheap and will break sooner rather than later and you won't be able to use the thermometer after that. I found one for about 10 dollars that has the mercury encased in metal and nice big numbers to read- specifically for candy.
There is a 20+ dollar model as well but is overkill unless you do a lot of deep pot candy making.
